This is a discussion on Glock 27 slide sticking open... within the Defensive Carry Guns forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Originally Posted by rhinokrk ...or your limpwristing.

In a nutshell, a limp wrist absorbs much of the momentum from recoil, robbing the slide of the momentum it needs to cycle completely. Your wrist should remain rigid so that the moving slide is properly "braced" (for lack of a better term).

So have we come upon an answer for your original issue? Limp -wristing was the cause of your failures?
You've done the initial firing...give it a good cleaning...get back to the range...grip tightly...you'll be just fine.
l've gone through two new Glocks in the last year.
Stay armed...good cleaning, firm grip...stay safe!

I have a gunshop owner friend who supplies LEO depatments with Glocks. He told me when a department picks up their order, he goes to the range with them for initial indoctrination. He is also a certified Glock armorer. He tells me They NEVER clean the Glocks before use and in all the orders he's placed, has never had a problem.
On the other hand, CZ handguns are literally dripping and oozing oil and grease and really NEED to be cleaned before firing.
